The registration for 19th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries organized in Poznan, Poland on 14-18.09.2015 is now open! Early registration deadline is the end of July, late registration closes in the end of August.
dArceo is a long term preservation system for source data (e.g. master files), initially developed by PSNC as a part of the SYNAT project . This system has been successfully included in the PSNC package DInGO – the set of tools to digitize and share collections on-line and it is currently used by dozens of Polish cultural and scientific institutions.
PSNC together with eleven leading national research and education networks (NRENs) representing the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Europe announced the official launch of the second “Enlighten Your Research Global” (EYR-Global) program. This program, which helps accelerate international research collaborations by providing selected proposals with improved networking, data transfers, and/or engineering, is now accepting proposals.
The OPTIME project was presented on 2015 Joint Conferences of the IEEE International Frequency Control Symposium & European Frequency and Time Forum (IFCS-EFTF) in Denver, Colorado, USA (12-16.04.2015).
Research actions carried out in the VISIONAIR project and aiming in implementation and testing the remote collaboration of multiple designers in locations distributed across the Europe have been completed and presented to wider publicity during two demonstration events in 2014. Research conducted by PSNC and its partners (KTH from Sweden, University of Bristol from U.K., University of Twente from Netherlands, I2CAT from Spain and University of Kaiserslautern from Germany) focused on enabling designers to simultaneously edit complex 3D models and allowing them the live observation of their work results using advanced visualization systems, just to mention holographic table, 3D UHD displays and CAVE. As the basic platform for rendering PSNC proposed VITRALL software, which was previously designed and developed by PSNC. For high resolution visualization requirements, the software was modified and adjusted during the VISIONAIR project.
The International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries (TPDL, http://tpdl2015.info/) constitutes a leading scientific forum on digital libraries that brings together researchers, developers, content providers and users in the field of digital libraries.
